Put in my lottery application for The Enchantments ✅🤞 • Have you ever hiked or camped in The Enchantments? What’s your favorite spot? • For those of you who might not know, The Enchantments are a protected zone in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness area. To backpack through, you need a permit. The amount of applications drastically outnumber the available permits to hand out, being awarded a permit is a big deal! Some ambitious folks will do the 22 mile through hike in one day, which you don’t need a permit for. Check our Recreation.gov for more info! • 📍Colchuck Lake at Seattle, Washington

A couple of action shots from the Caledonia Classic Dog Sled Race this Sunday. Hard to believe this is the 24th year already. I managed to catch the last two events, the skijor and the 4 dog sprints. So many groups and people pull together to put this event on, it makes it like a little community within a community as you walk around and take it all in. Definitely worth stopping in checking it out next year! . . . . . . #outdoorphotography #beautifulbc #outdoors #countrylife #northernbc #visitbulkeynechako #travelnorthernbc #landscapephotography #explorebc #stuartlake #outdoorliving #dogsledding #sleddog #winterscene #fortstjames #takeonpg #princegeorgenow #wintersports #caledoniaclassic at Fort Saint James

This Sunday, I snuck down to the annual Caledonia Classic Sled Dog Race. This is just a quick collection of some of the excited stars of the show in either rest or go modes. It's pretty impressive to see a whole team of dogs bouncing in the air against their harnesses just waiting for that flag to drop. . . . . . . . #outdoorphotography #countrylife #northernbc #visitbulkeynechako #travelnorthernbc #stuartlake #explorebc #caledoniaclassic #dogsledding #winterscene #fortstjames #wintersports #outdoorliving #sleddog at Fort Saint James

One of the quintessential sites of Fort St. James. This church, Our Lady of Good Hope, built in 1873 is one of the oldest wooden Catholic churches in British Columbia. It's easy to get used to these sites when you drive past daily but tonight, as I lined up a colourful sunset behind it. I couldn't help but think of the awe this structure would have instilled as a person would paddle their way down Stuart Lake after being on rugged pack trails for days leaving from yet another rustic Fort connecting trade and travel in the region. . . . . . . #outdoorphotography #beautifulbc #outdoors #countrylife #northernbc #visitbulkeynechako #travelnorthernbc #landscapephotography #explorebc #sunset #stuartlake #fortstjames #takeonpg #princegeorgenow #winterscene #lakeside #historicbc at Fort Saint James

This is a shot from a fun shoot the other weekend. @dancemamakat bravely volunteered to model for some lightpainting mostly shared on my project page @sleepingbearphotography . It was a great opportunity to add some dimension to my lightpainting with a model again. Katelynn did a fabulous job braving the weather. @bentbirch added her support running the camera and choreographing the two of us in each scene. . . . . . . . . #outdoorphotography #lighttube #northernbc #nightphotography #tubetribe #lightpainting #lightcreators #winterscene #longexposure #longexposure_shots #stuartlake #lakeside #landscapephotography #fortstjames #lightpaintinglife at Fort Saint James

I could go on and on forever about how thankful I am for everything I’ve been blessed with in this life. But I’ll stick to the point and just say how thankful I am go to adventure in this wonderful state with wonderful friends, even if it’s freezing and rainy constantly. Happy thanksgiving 🧡 #wa #pnw #stuartlake #pnwow at Lake Stuart

Floating orb. I recently came across the amazing art of @the_ball_of_light Denis Smith and was really taken with the floating orbs that he creates. So down the wormhole of watching 5 or 6 YouTube videos and Instagram stalking (as you do), I figured it was time to give this a go. I really like the reflection but it turns out that it's fairly difficult to keep your centre point reference in knee deep water in the dark. So it's not the tight, picture perfect orb that I was hoping for but I think it was a good start! 📷 Trigger finger by @bentbirch 🔦 Custom orb tool built by the talented @liamschulzephotography . . . . . #floatingorb #orbshuffle #longexposure #nightphotography #longexposure_shots #lightpainting #reflection #lakeside #stuartlake #spinup at Fort Saint James

“Don’t ever live vicariously.” | I went fishing... for the first time ever! Not only did I go fishing but I even caught some!!! And I gutted, cleaned, cooked, and ate one. Fresh mountain cutthroat trout MacGyverishly grilled over the open flame of a backpacking stove (because there was a fire ban) and served on the plastic packaging of a freeze dried camping meal is some of the best tasting food I’ve had 😆 It used up most of our fuel but was well worth it. These are all things that only a year ago I would not have done. Grateful for new experiences and and a more open mind.

Hooligans. So there I was trying to capture the rising, golden sunlight as it painted the iconic face of Mount Pope from across a calm Stuart lake. When out of the blue, this avian gang of hooligans photobombed my shot and they had the nerve to laugh the whole time! After calming down, I decided they added some more story to the scene, especially being lit up as well by the golden sun.😉 . . . . . . . #outdoorphotography #beautifulbc #outdoors #countrylife #northernbc #visitbulkeynechako #travelnorthernbc #landscapephotography #explorebc #wildlife #reflection #sunrise #bcparks #stuartlake #lakeside #mountpope at Paarens Beach

I love this lake. I really love the way that you can't see the end of it regardless of what angle you are at. It's narrow enough to always provide a view of the shoreline but long enough that it seems like it never ends. I have a hard time turning around in a boat because I always want to keep going further. . . . . . . #outdoorphotography #beautifulbc #outdoors #countrylife #northernbc #visitbulkeynechako #travelnorthernbc #landscapephotography #skyline #explorebc #sunrise #stuartlake #lakeside #bcparks at Paarens Beach

Enchantments, 2018. Backpacking in the alpine for the first time since I had my hip/pelvis hacked out.

Fall’s a scrumptious time to hike WA 🍁🍂 . . This colorful photo was taken last year as my daughter and I hail-tied ourselves to the parking on #stuartlake after spending a dangerously long time at #colchucklake. We didn’t quite make it out before #sunset but all was good! I’ve hiked, backpacked, and cycled all over #washingtonstate and #colchuck is hands down my favorite Wilderness Lake that most moderately fit person’s should be able to enjoy; and therefore, it’s a must for any of my visiting #hiker friends. It’s located just outside of #leavenworthwa in what’s known as #theenchantments. It’s in the #alpinelakeswilderness and the last stop before #aasgardpass, the BIG CLIMB into the inner core of the #upperenchantments. There’s several ways to enjoy the enchantments but unless you win one of the few overnight permits for the Upper Enchantments, it’s an 18-mile thru-hike. SO unless you’re a 💪🏻 hiker, and have #scrambling experience, I wouldn’t recommend it. Shoot for a day trip to Stuart Lake or Colchuck, it’s totally worth it! . If you do plan to thru-hike during months with snow, be super careful. People die every year walking or #glissading across #snowfields only to fall through to the rushing waters beneath. So unless you’re highly experienced, don’t #glissade no matter how tempting it looks to be 😱🙏🏻👌🏻 .
